Chinese telecom and smartphone giant Huawei alone is likely to ship up to 100 million 5G smartphones in its home turf as mass adoption of 5G is likely to begin as soon as 2020 starts, according to Taiyo Yuden, a Japanese maker of ceramic capacitors.

The firm sees an increasing demand for its components next year as China pushes ahead with the fifth generation of cellular technology.


Huawei and ZTE are believed to be the two leading clients for 5G capacitors and Shoichi Tosaka, CEO, Taiyo Yuden predicts Huawei alone will reach 100 million 5G smartphone shipments in the coming year, GSMArena reported on Friday.

According to Tosaka, the company has already received its yearly 5G base station orders and expects orders for 5G smartphone components in the coming weeks as well.

Meanwhile, the Chinese tech behemoth has decided to beef up business in South Korea by increasing purchase of parts for network equipment and smartphones, amid continued US sanctions.

Karl Song Kai, head of Huawei’s global media and communications, said last week that the company also planned to increase investment in South Korea, but he didn’t specify the numbers.

“In 2020, we’ll buy more Korean-made products and invest more in South Korea,” he said.

The US also imposed a ban on Huawei that prevents the Chinese firm from buying American-made parts, such as chips and software. But such sanctions have made Huawei turn its eyes to non-American vendors, including South Korea. (IANS)

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
